I am delighted to be the first to review this debut novel. Though science fiction isn't my preferred genre I will read anything which catches my eye, which is what the synopsis of this novel did. After reading the sample I took the plunge and was carried away on a huge wave of intelligence and imagination.
The human race was created long ago by another strange ancient race in order to harvest the bodies for a form of perpetual reincarnation, or virtual immortality, while humans are encouraged to take drugs as a type of control. Some members of the original race have been incarnating into human bodies so long they no longer remember who they are - or were. And when they do remember which side will they choose, their original race or that of the bodies they've inhabited for so long?
I was very impressed by the author's many characterizations and the flowing dialogue which never let the interest flag as the novel built inexorably to its climax.
I look forward to reading more from this author.
